The Jossers

2016 (United Kingdom) - Gareth Brierley - Age / Black Narratives / Comedy / Narrative Fiction / No Dialogue / Short Film / Slapstick

Sidelined in the wings of a theatre, somewhere in the backstreets of Amsterdam, four old men try to save their dying cabaret act. Broken, ill and dejected they try to copy younger, more successful counterparts – with the poignant aim of recreating their glory years with disastrous results. Funny, moving and beautifully bizarre, The Jossers is an examination of what happens when the laughs stop and the audience goes quiet.
